About this event

Our newest training is a free two-day training for mentors of young black men. This curriculum was recently developed in partnership with leading researchers in the fields of mentoring, youth development, and social justice to support individuals mentoring young black men. While the training is relevant to all mentors working with young men of color, the material is specifically tailored to empower young black men involved in one-on-one and group mentoring programs.

The objectives of the training are to:
•Move mentors beyond cultural competence and towards an integration of critical consciousness
•Build the capacity of mentors to meet their mentees “where they are” while also embracing existing natural (informal), familial and societal structures
•Gain a greater understanding of key research and approaches to developing a critical consciousness model into their mentoring approach.
